Happy almost-weekend girls! I’ve got an amazing line of polish to share with you today. Fellow mani-lovers will want to keep reading… you’ve got to hear about this line! 

 As you all know, I’ve been on a natural nail kick lately! I quit gel and completely revamped my nail care routine (read about it here). I’ve been using a ton of new products and I have been so, SO happy with the results. I’m much more aware of the chemicals in my polishes, and while I can’t say I plan to toss every bottle that’s not up to par, I have been more likely to reach for the “good” stuff.

When I was given the opportunity to try Bella Lacquer, I couldn’t pass! First off, it has my NAME ON IT! I kind of makes me feel like I have my own line of polish (#goals)…well not really, but I can pretend haha!  Second, this company is so stand up. The way they create, test, and  produce their products is admirable. Not to mention, their polish is absolutely phenomenal!

A quick rundown on this line… “Bella is more than a vegan, eco-friendly nail polish. It’s a lifestyle in a bottle! We’re about femininity, self-empowerment and self-awareness, so these themes are interwoven into everything we do- especially our name. We believe that life is beautiful, and if you live unapologetically with ambition, passion and vigor, Bella Lacquer is the lifestyle for you.”

Bella Lacquer is based in LA and their products are made…cruelty free… in the USA! Their formula is eco-friendly, vegan, and free of the 7 most toxic chemical ingredients found in most polishes; formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, dibutyl phthalate (DPB), toluene, and camphor. They’re even certified by PETA!  If that doesn’t convince you that they are the real deal, I’m not sure what will!

They currently sell 13 gorgeous, long-lasting, chip-resistant, high-shine, gel-like polishes and today I’m swatching four of them! Take a peek at these beauties!

Bella Lacquer featured in Love & Loathing LA

With each new season comes new beauty products. Similar to rotating seasonal flavors at your local ice cream shop, beauty products are a reflection of the time of year as well and must be tested, tried, tasted, and applied accordingly. Typically speaking, what’s delicious during the Winter won’t be as tasty during the Summer, so keeping up with what’s fresh and in season is imperative. (That goes both for ice cream and beauty products.) With the sunniest of seasons upon us I’ve been a very busy girl personally investigating all types of products from the absolute necessities to the just-for-fun ones. (I know, miserable.) I’ve been on the hunt for the best sunscreen to protect my face under my makeup (found it!), and per usual, I’ve been obsessing over all of the Spring/Summer makeup trends such as application of copper/coral tones. Somewhere in between I’ve discovered all kinds of products that we should all get our hands *and faces* on this Summer. So with no further adieu, grab a refreshing beverage and allow me to introduce you to your official Love & Loathing LA guide to the best beauty products for summer!



BELLA LAQUER // Nail Polish // $13

I will ALWAYS have love for my LA based brands doing right by the people by making quality driven products, and Bella Laquer is right up there with the best of ’em. The brand prides themselves of being “5-free” yet miraculously also long-lasting – the best of both worlds as far as I’m concerned! Right now you’ve got 13 delicious colors to choose from with some titles that would seriously rival OPI’s, and they’re all just $13.
